Twitter users heaped scorn and derision on Donald Rumsfeld after the former secretary of defense lamented that he would not likely live long enough to see a flat tax enacted.
At 83, I am close to losing hope that I will live to see a flat tax.

The 83-year-old Rumsfeld’s tweet invited social media users to vent their anger at him over the Iraq War and other misdeeds when he served in the George W. Bush administration.
.@RumsfeldOffice at 18, I am close to losing hope that I will live to see you prosecuted for war crimes

.@RumsfeldOffice – you go to war with the tax structure you have, not the tax structure you want. (PS you are a very bad person)

@RumsfeldOffice the rest of us are losing hope that you'll ever see the inside of a prison where you belong.
